useful tip:

Load the song from Imron's link on Internet Explorer (maybe you can do that with other browsers, but I haven't tried, wait for the tune to load completely and then go to the cache folder (temporary internet files) on your hard disk... You will find the file there. :mrgreen:

The ringtone I really want is that ringtone that one of the main female characters has (Xiaoqian's girlfriend at the beginning, forgot her name. Not Chuchu's Mike Oldfield one). That weirdo melody.

I did try recording it using my mobile phone, but the result wasn't very good.

This series was awesome! I have one question though...

What happened to Dong Dong, the little kid? And the kid who became mentally ill after eating some bad food o_o (He was chanting something about wnating to go see monkeys)

I remember Dong Dong was diagnosed w/leukemia, and got some transplant but did he ever get better...and what about hte monkey kid??

At episode 12. Not sure what to make of it, except I'm not bored yet! At this point I can't say it's helping my listening skills, but I still have some 30 episodes to go. While I know it's dangerous to judge a culture by its mass-media, I do feel I am learning a bit about modern Beijing culture.

Wish 傻妞 had more screen time. I like that skin-tight midriff-baring outfit. But let's just say she obviously wasn't hired for her acting skills....

The part I remember best was when 黄眉大王 just arrived in 2006, and was trying to find 陆小千 . But couldn't, because (a) the signs were read left-to-right, not right-to-left, and (b ) the 陆 was simplified. [Oh, I just noticed renzhe said the same thing in post #12.]

I also liked that Chinese-speaking 老外 doing the negotiations. And 猪哥 going crazy over the "sexy" clothing. And 黄眉大王 hitting the phone because he was told to make a phone call.

Are his [黄眉大王] powers limited in shows 3 and 4 or is his culture shock just so bad that he is willing to be an errand boy?

I thought he lost his powers in a fight with 傻妞 in some episode, and didn't recover them until he was shocked at the asylum? Then it took him a couple of episodes to get his mojo back, but after that he took command.
